of the cuts into taxes. but at any rate, we think early this week we'll have a clear sense of getting this done t. may have to go back to the house if the senate does amend it, and then the house i think would quickly pass it. host: stick with us real quick. senate majority whip dick durbin was on fox news sunday yesterday talking about the continuing spending resolution to keep the government funded and timing on what. i want to play that now. >> this is all very important, i understand, but we have work to be done in just a short period of time. i urge my senate colleagues, let's be sparing in the amends. let's get the c.r. passed. we can do it and do it quickly this coming week. host: before we let you go, if they don't get this done this week railroad company we thinking members may come back from recess next week before the 27th? is there any talk of that? guest: there's been nothing that i've heard, and i mean, i just wouldn't -- i wouldn't be too speaked by this. i think they will get it done early. i think they'll know by today, we'll be able to rough out a schedule after we h
the sequester and in committee, democrats proposed to close those special interest tax loopholes that riddle our tax code, republicans said no. democrats proposed to offset unwise republican cuts to medical research like alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes research at n.i.h., republicans said no. democrats tried to cut the special interest spending in the tax code to offset republican cuts to students who rely on pell grants but republicans said no. mr. van hollen: i yield the gentleman another minute and a half. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. ms. castor: the democrats in the budget committee proposed to strengthen medicare and replace the republican plan to turn medicare into a voucher program. all it does is simply shift the cost tour families and older neighbors. mr. speaker, this republican budget is not consistent with american values. it is not fiscally responsible. it is a charade, it is a capitulation to the tea party. it does not serve us well in economic recovery and the ways we want to grow america. it's a plan for economic weakness. it's a receding vision of american greatness. in
of that magic fairy dust that ways and means is going to use to be able to eliminate the alternative minimum tax, be able to lower the top rate to 25%. you go through the areas that are outlined here on page 73, whatever that magic ways and means very dust is that allows us to do these magical things, let's do the same and at least at a minimum be able to maintain and increase in the budget authority and the outlays for the function for hundred so that we can continue at least at the current, inadequate level, rather than see a reduction of about one-third. i think this is an important policy statement for the committee in advance of what i hope is a serious conversation about what is a crisis for many people in the country. ironically, i think most of us would agree infrastructure investment is the quickest way to provide family wage jobs and improve the economy in every one of our districts, in every state in the union. i would turn, if i could, to my colleague, mr. polcan, who has some of the rations. >> i am glad you brought this amendment forward, mr. blumenauer. when i was on the joint com
tax reform that does not raise revenues but reduces the burdens of our tax code on small businesses and individuals. and regulatory reforms that likewise reduce the ongoing burdens on small businesses, job creation, and those struggling to achieve the economic train. i was encouraged by his answer to both questions. on tax reform in particular, the president ported -- pointed to corporate tax reform. he said he believed there was a lot of agreement between republicans and democrats on corporate tax reform, on broadening the base and lowering the rates so we can be internationally competitive and remaining revenue neutral. all of that was encouraging. those were principles that have wide agreement. if we lower our rates, our country has the highest of any developed country in the world. over a trillion dollars -- over $1 trillion of capital is overseas. we need to bring that back so we can get back to work appeared i was encouraged but his expression of willingness to get that done. on the second issue, on reducing the burden of regulations, job creation, economic growth, he likewise
for medicare. or else i lose my provider, and i think that's a tax they are putting on people with -- bilities and trying to got to pay on their disability. and those with legionnaires disease or h.i.v., dirty needles. host: ray, atlanta, georgia, republican party. good morning. caller: good morning. very interesting conversation you're having this morning. i have found that most people pend a fairer amount of time planning for their vacation than for their retirement. i work with a fortune 10 company and have been with them for 28 years so at the water cooler hearing different conversations if you ask people how much money they have in their 401-k, a lot of them have no idea nor do they have any idea on the different plans to put their money in. it's rather appalling, actually. host: ray, how old are you? caller: 52. host: when do you plan to retire? caller: i'm going to work until i'm 62-63 years old. something about public america, i have a -- family members with retirement pensions about $65,000. being in corporate america my pension is nowhere near that, so if we don't save in our 401-k t
a budget in balance through largely spending cuts and largely no tax hikes, in other corner democratic senator patty murray. a case of us likely losing, because the cuts really are not there we have rick yo joining m -- a little boxing reference, you have to know that. all right, so, what do you think elizabeth? leaving aside in controversial things that paul ryan wants to do. in the en, just trimming the increase, that is it? >> yeah, i think one of the big thing here's that people lose sight of is balancing the budget, patty murray supposed budget does not even balance, it is supposed to raise a trillion in revenue, that tells you, this is more of a shopping spree than a budget, people need to remember that a budget hopefully means you are only spending as much as you take in, not more. neil: scott martin, the markets seem to sense, maybe that despite all of the just erring -- gesturing we're at least, cutting the growth and stuff, we're not really cutting but that is better than doing nothing? or am i misreading the market? >> you are reading it correctly, that is a reason we had su
to raise taxes in virginia in order to deal with transportation problems. it's also worth noting that people are noting the absence of those two, and the presence of people like mitt romney who has said he's never going to run again, and a lot of republicans think he has admitted ran a campaign with some flaws along the donald trump and sarah palin raises questions about the absence of mcdonnell and chris christie. there will be a straw poll here. it doesn't mean a heck of a lot other than republicans are already keeping score. and one more thing, jon. yesterday when we were talking about deliberate irs taxes, i said one in ten were delinquent, it's actually one in a hundred. i don't want the irs angry at me. so made a mistake and cleaned it up. jon: all right. one in one hundred, and as you said, we'll see who shows up to the next cattle call for conservatives. carl cameron, thank you. jenna: well, an outpouring of reaction to the newly-elected leader of the catholic church. pope francis planning an inaugural mass in the sistine chapel. he told a crowd of some 100,000 people in
vitality of the population. our population grew by 50%, but our tax base stayed the same. people who are here legally, especially the new american citizens, are looking for jobs and they are scarce. 22 million americans are out of work, and now the proposal is to waive the carrot of citizenship to millions more. and when we were talking about giving amnesty to millions, maybe 20 million illegal aliens, how much more scarce will those jobs become? mr. speaker, we have heard these proposals before. in 1986 we said that if we granted amnesty there would only be about 1.5 million people who would be included. in truth it turned out to be twice that amount. we were also told that it would never happen again. our borders would be secure and this problem would never occur again. in truth that was not true. so now 27 years later our borders still aren't secure and here we are doing this all over again. well, we got fooled once. by news reports we were told there were 11 million illegal aliens in this nation right now. by using 1986 as a yardstick we can guess by offering amnesty there might
and medicaid, give the wealthy yet another tax break, put most of the burden on the poor and middle class and repeal obama care. this budget is going nowhere. it will be dead on arrival in the senate. it is pure fiscal mastur va tion. yet paul ryan gets credit for being a serious thinker. i will tell you this if paul ryan is a serious thinker i am an astronaut. take a look at the budget. doesn't add up. tomorrow, congressman keith ellison and peter welch, oh, boy. can't wait for that. come back and join us right here tomorrow. >> this is "the bill press show." [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> stephanie: happy wednesday everybody. jacki schechner, you know i have so few things in my life. look how happy i am about my new coffee mug. >> what does it say? >> stephanie: it is green in time for st. patrick's day. >> ooh. does that mean there's no pinch ug? >> stephanie: here now is colin farrell. >> messing about with mrs. all the rumors are true. >> i got about a third of that. then again if he looks like colin farrell, it doesn't matter. >> stephanie: all right. now here we are. we'
now that they are working on does nothing more than raise taxes. they want more of your money, more money out of your paycheck. ask yourself does washington really need more of your money? we are $16 trillion in debt. we have deficits we can't even wrap our arms around, and they want more of your money. if you were a financial advisor that put you $1 million in debt and ripped through your college savings for your children and all of your checking account and said, just give me more money and we'll solve the problem, would you do it? absolutely not. more than jobs, though, we are also working to save medicare and social security, the commitments that we have made to the american people. so let's take a look here at the big picture. here's a budget breakdown of where we are at right now. look, your eyes are glazed over and we start talking about the trillions of dollars that we spend, but let's take a look at what you pay versus what you expect. this big blue part right here? that's on auto pilot. no adults have come to the table to talk about where we are at today and how to actuall
washington times" -- there are no sacred cows that calls for $1 trillion in new taxes. what's your takeaway? guest: well, what it does is also call for substantial cuts, but it deals with deficit reduction in a balanced way. what the republicans want to do is do deficit reduction simply by cutting, cutting, cutting. doing away with medicare as we know it. right now converting that into a voucher system which we very, very onerous for senior citizens, making devastating cuts in medicaid which means that millions of millions of american people and kids will lose their health insurance. massive cuts in education, in nutrition. basically every program that in the middle of a terrible recession working people depend upon would be done away with. what my view is -- i think the senate agrees what the committee is moving toward is to say, wait a second, we are seeing a middle class collapse, poverty at a high rate while the wealthiest and corporations are doing extraordinarily well. we are looking at record breaking profits for corporations and yet their effective tax rate is the lowest since 1972.
with your tax dollars. now more than 300,000 federal contractors are dodging paying their taxes if you can believe this story. a democratic lawmaker is going after those workers and she will join us next. bill: also this picture became a symbol of washington waste after taxpayers paid for a lavish las vegas conference. government workers attending there including this guy in the hot tub. wait until you hear what this federal agency is doing now. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves tohop online with her debit ca and so does bill, an identity thf who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accountand stole her hard-earned money. unfortunately, millions of ericans just like you learn misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft and no one helps stop it better than
, workers who don't earn enough to pay taxes even. and so there was a lot of anger that got generated. and i think it also generated a lot of motivation. i know that our people got more mobilized as a result of that video. and i'm sure that others did. and i think that what scott did, and i think his strategy was flawless. i think what he did with no prompting by anybody but him thinking it through, he wanted those that couldn't afford the $50,000 dinner to be able to see the real mitt romney. and the others that got scott upset is that mitt romney was talking about himself being a job creator and then he saw what mitt romney was doing in china buying these factories at bain capital. and he saw that as a complete sort of contradiction of what mitt romney was trying to portray. i think in the sense that mitt romney helped the obama machinery show what romney really was about, i think it was if not a game changer darn near a game changer and i think america owes scott a big debt of thanks. >> well, he is a hero in my opinion and a lot of americans on social media are saying the same thing. it
for considering is the tax and spending blueprint for fiscal year 2014. live coverage at 2:15 eastern here on c-span2. south carolina is holding a primary today in the 1st congressional house district. here's a look at that race. >> host: well, here is the front page of the state newspaper this morning, a story by gina smith for the island packet. turnout will decide today's election for the 1st congressional seat in south carolina. gina smith is joining us on the phone this morning. of gina smith, tell me about this race. who's running and why? >> guest: well, good morning from south carolina. this is like christmas morning for me, i'm so excited. [laughter] this is really an exciting race. we have 18 republicans, two democrats, an incredibly crowded field. but some of the names in this race just make it just delicious to watch. we have mark stanford, the former -- sanford, the former governor who most of the nation remembers as the guy who slipped out of the country in 2009 so he could go visit his mistress, and he -- everyone thought he was hiking the appalachian trail, but he was up to some
are always trying to protect taxes or wealthy people? is that a problem out there with the rank-and-file voters? >> no, i mean -- i don't think so. i think that's obviously a misperception that's become a real perception by the public. but i think we have to talk about things in ways that people can relate to. i mean, if you're talking about taxes and taxing small businesses, you have to talk about the fact that if -- if -- if our small businessman has to pay more money to the government, then he's going to have less money to pay to his ememployers, and the ememployers will have less money to send kids to the school of their choice. i think it's a matter of talking about the debt differently. not just we are in imminent danger in a debt crisis in this country. but what does that mean to people? it means that our government is growing so fast and it's becoming so expensive that we're making payments to our credit cards that we can't afford, which means we have to keep -- we'll keep having this debate about needing more revenue to the government. well, that means less money in peo
. the sequencing done right on this cut spending cuts and tax reform. things sound great and they're moving along now. but joe, as we talked about earlier, you're going to have reticent democrats. and even key congressional races who are going to slow down a bit and saying, look, i want immigration and guns dealt with, what are we doing about the economy and the budget, the debt, and tax reform? >> and this is, richard haas, you can only push people so far, i mean, not the republicans' best friend. this weekend said democrats you're about to lose me. i pay 40% federal, 15%. well, i hear we have it cued up. let's go. this is bill maher this weekend. >> -- actually do pay the freight in this country. i just saw the statistics, something like 70%. and here in california, i'm just going to say, liberals, you could actually lose me. it's outrageous what we're paying. over -- i'm willing to pay my share, but yeah, it's ridiculous. >> and not only that -- >> wow. >> people like bill maher pay 55% in california, people in new york pay over 50%. in new jersey, why is a republican sitting at 70% plus appro
are the fundamental issues? we know ronald reagan spent much of his life trying to cut taxes for the average american. he was convinced that it was the man or woman on the street who knew how to spend their dollar more wisely than the federal government and he did all in his power to prove it by cutting taxes. governor jeb bush was in office he cut taxes on floridians by $20 billion. let's talk abut the size of government. ronald reagan was in the white house he dramatically reduce the rate of growth in federal spending and strove to reduce the size of the federal government. when governor bush was in office, he vetoed more than $2.3 billion in earmarks for higher state spending and reduce the size of the state government payroll a 13,000. when ronald reagan cut taxes and reduce the side of the government on the national level he did it with a purpose in mind. it was to spur the free market, create opportunity and provide incentives for businesses to grow. in his years in office over 20 million new jobs were created governor bush's state of florida is similar philosophy and economic or grams created

realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world int

spending can create jobs, but house republicans seem more interested in cutting taxes than listening to what the american people actually might want, as a reminder, the paul ryan budget cut spending, and offense no new revenues, with six budgets on the table, what is the road ahead? joining us now is doug lulls holtz-aiken, the former director of the congressional budget office. also the chief economist of the president's council of the economic advisers until president george w. bush. >> great to be here. >> and budget season no less. >> the thought in washington. >> you wrote it's like the super bowl for budget wonks and those who love them. >> just besides myself. >> i feel like we're going to have differing viewpoints here. >> shocking. >> i feel like you are not a fan of the murray budget, but whether or not you like it, she does offer both spending cuts and revenue. may not as much in spending cuts as republicans would like, but it seems like democrats are more open to compromise than republicans when it comes to the basic issue of spending and cuts. do you disagree with that?
. we don't believe that we ought to be raising taxes on middle income americans, which is exactly what the ryan budget will do. if you are going to sort the voucherize medicare, and then say to them with this voucher, you shop around, but then i've got to make up the difference with the insurance, then that's raising taxes on people who are on medicare. at the same time, you cutting taxes to people in the upper income categories. then we want a block grant, medicaid. that means that there are seniors who will find themselves being shopped around from state to state to find which nursing home will be able to take them. that is the kind of stuff that we ought not have. we ought to have a national medicaid program, a national medicare program, and it should be a guarantee. it should not be a voucher to shop around to insurance companies. >>> but congressman, there's going to have to be compromise before anything gets done. from the president's vision, if there is to be another grand bargain, it would require changes on entitlements. are you and the other members of the democratic caucus w

defense systems in place to protect us from icbm tax, but north korea, in particular, has recently made advances in its capabilities and has engaged in a series of irresponsible and reckless situations. specifically, north korea announced last month it has conducted its third nuclear test this appears to be a road mobile icbm. also, it is using the taepodong-2 missile, demonstrating progress in their development of long-range issile technology. in order to bolster the protection of our homeland and state ahead of this threat, we are taking four steps. first, we will strengthen the homeland missile defense by deploying 14 additional ground-based interceptors at fort greeley, alaska. that will increase the number of ground-based interceptors from 30 to 44, including the four gbi's at vandenberg base in alifornia. this is nearly a fifth to% increase in air missile capability. second, with the support of the japanese government, we are planning to deploy additional adar in japan. the second radar will provide improved tracking of any missile launched in north korea at the united states or j
was taxing the colonists. and do you remember taxation without representation, so you can trace the beginnings of the revolution to this room. this is the way it would have been when george washington came here for dipper with he and -- dinner when he and martha and the family would come. he not only dined here, but he also dined at various taverns, so let's go over and see gadsby's tavern which was probably george washington's favorite tavern. [background sounds] >> this is gadsby's tavern, probably george washington's favorite t.a.r.p.. he dined her frequently. there was a tavern on this site as early as the early 1770s. in the current building where the museum is today, it was build circa 1785, and the new addition on the corner was added in 1792, so the new addition is over 200 years old too. some of the famous people who dined here included john adams, thomas jefferson, james madison and james monroe. thomas jefferson had his inaugural dinner here. john gadsby had a terrific reputation for hospitality. he was known for the really great dinners that he would serve, so he was
equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the "grio," joy reid. governor rendell, i read what you had to say about this. i'm just wondering, why would a political party believe a new pr strategy would cover up for its policies? >> it makes no sense at all. first of all, their policies are bankrupt. they're the exact same, and they haven't changed their policies a bit, chris. you see republican state legislators pushing virulent antiabortion bills that are clearly unconstitutional, clearly punitive to women. no exceptions for incest and rape. things that voters rejected the last time dramatically. they're still -- they don't get it about income inequality in this country. they're still pushing for budgets that give huge tax breaks to the rich a
the president wanted. >> well, he got his revenue. he has gotten his revenue. obama care has 21 new taxes. my goodness. i'd like to get rid of obama care in total and rid of those taxes. you've got to look at some of these other components of the problem. and you cannot tax your way out of this. i quite frankly liked the op-ed in "the wall street journal" today that showed our budget with the stablization pulling back on all of those spending components and putting ourselves in a position of growth would give us household income growth of $1500 in 2014 and $4,000 per household within this ten-year window. and what we're saying is, you've got to get this under control. now, the president wants to continue to spend and put new spending in place by getting new revenues. that's not workable. the american people don't want that. they want to see some spending restraints, some control, some common sense brought to bear in this budget process. >> congresswoman, i want to get you on the record about senator rand paul coming out in support of comprehensive immigration reform. right now it looks like r
a robust debate on tax reform? that is sitting out there and no one is moving on it and everyone is very unhappy with the tax code as it currently exists and there are some opportunities there to pick up some additional revenue. but, at the same time, it would send a signal, i think, across the entire spectrum of the country maybe they can get something done. >> i agree with you. you're an experienced observer of these things. why can't we have this? the simpson-bowles system is hire tax reform and we are trapped. >> i don't know why the president just doesn't reach out and say we are having trouble with these other issues. this is one in which we can all gather at the same place and get something done. >> isn't the argument what to do about the -- that's where everyone sort of breaks. the president is saying, it's not -- some of it should be used to -- some of it should go back into the government and some of it could be used to lower tax rates. >> the president is not spending the good tax reform and debate is why. washington loves to talk about taxes. a long time now sideways spending
unpopular tax on private savings accounts failed to collect a single yes vote. for more, let's check in with with my cube mate in cyprus. michelle, you made it. >> reporter: yeah, we made it finally after lots of delays. now it's mission critical and a search for plan b. last night the parliament roundly said we don't want to attach the deposits of the banking system here. but the situation is they still have to come up with nearly 6 billion euros. remember what the end game here. this country has gone to other european countries and said we need a total of 17 billion euro toss bail out our banks and keep our government afloat. and they said we'll give you 10 billion. you have to contribute something yourself. you know where all the money is in this country? it's in the banking system. it's a huge banking system, eight times the size of their economy. consider this, brian, if the us banking system was as big relative to the u.s. economy as cyprus is, we would have 45 more banks the size of jpmorgan in the united states. that's how big it is. that's why there's a need to tax deposits.
is being asked to tax the savings accounts in people's banks at about 10% in exchange for 10 billion euro bailout from its eu partners. that's a first in the short but painful history of eurozone bailouts and it set off a weekend run on atms. people trying to get their savings out before taxes hit. banks are closed through wednesday to prevent a run. parliament is due to vote on that tax tomorrow. >>> so how offensive is this. check out that salute. the nazi salute on the field of a professional soccer game in greece over the weekend and the player is actually doing this to celebrate a goal. that 20 year old was immediately admonished. look at the look at the face of his teammate. eke. in his defense he said he did not know this was a nazi salute. that he doesn't know politics. but he certainly has time to learn now because he's been banned for life from ever playing on his country's national team. >>> a close call for louisiana governor bobby jindal on his way home from his son's soccer game when a truck sideswiped his car while making an illegal turn. governor jindal wasn't hurt but a t
unique agency in that many respects it oversees the implementation of transportation and sales tax, so it's a very san francisco specific agency in that sense, and i think it's important to do a pretty comprehensive search, but i want to make sure that there's also a focus on the san francisco specific needs that we have including making sure that local internal candidates are part of the consideration because i do think that we're unique in many respects. >> i agree with that wholeheartedly. our outreach strategy is two fold. we always start with a focused area for a variety of reasons including economics. given the current economic conditions in the country lot of of relocation and family relationships and the others we try to start in this area and then build out from there, so although it's a national recruitment our first focus is local, then regional, then nationally. where that differs -- where we defer from that is when we don't have strong individuals in certain parts of the country. we went south carolina because we heard about somebody or to boston and someone that knows
sure that the tax dollars are being well spent so i want to encourage you to keep that very firmly in mind. this is a somewhat unique setting. >> i agree wholeheartedly. that's a good point, and it also speaks to commissioner mar's comments about outreach and inclusion in the stakeholder engagement process. if you look at the timeline today is march march 18. we have basically this week to do community engagement which means from the standpoint of scheduling and making it happen that's a very, very aggressive timeline in order to produce a document that you will have to review and approve on the following week, so what i might suggest that we might want to do as part of this process is have some of that community engagement be on-going. the fact that we have a recruitment profile that has been produced does not necessarily impede us from listening to our stakeholders and being able to integrate additional comments into the selection and evaluation part of the process which is equally important as identifying what the key characteristics are, so even though we may not have compl
black people were regularly kept from voting with roadblocks like literacy tests, poll taxes, and "you must be this white to vote" signs. [laughter] now that law is being challenged in the supreme court by shelby county, alabama. they argue that the law is unfair, because it applies only to states with histories of racial discrimination: alabama, arizona, georgia, louisiana, mississippi, south carolina, texas, parts of carolina, texas, virginia, and alaska, which has a sad history of discriminating against its african american population brian. [laughter] good guy. [ laughter ] he's a good guy. [laughter] but there's one key reason to strike this act down, as shelby -- there's one reason to get rid of this law as shelby county lawyer bert rein explained to the court. >> the problem to which the voting rights act was addressed is solved. >> stephen: you heard it, folks: racism is solved! jimmy, drop the fully integrated balloons! [cheers and applause] we overcame it! whoo! [cheers and applause] look at that! [cheers and applause] look at that! look at that! [cheers and applause] wow. [c
. and seeing these massive tax continue to happen. i mean, i thought it would in with the texas belltower, but it hasn't. universities, schools, movie theaters, law offices, places of employment. and these weapons become the weapon of choice. why allow them to continue? this bill doesn't take a weapon from anybody. it's silly talks about the future. it simply says if you possess one, you have to keep it safely, trigger lock him that if you sell to anyone but a family member, they have to have a background check. it affects clips and ammunition feeding devices. so people that want to go into a theater and killed 100 people can't do it with a 100 round magazine. i don't see that as being bad. i don't see that as harming america. because we have so many guns. no nation has more guns in their civilian society than we do. and you can compare murder rates with this isn't allowed to happen. you can compare it with the uk. you can compare with australia. and you will see a few double digits and then you'll see thousands in america. so how is this a bad thing to do? you know, i've been in this pol
